Astronomy on Tap Las Vegas #8 – Journey to the Center of the Earth

June 20, 2023 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM PDT

Join Astronomy on Tap Las Vegas for a night of drinks and trivia, while learning how astronomers study the universe!  For this event, Professor Ashkan Salamat will tell us about high pressure physics happening at the Nevada Extreme Conditions Laboratory.  Afterwards, our former host David Rice will explain how the results found in these high pressure labs can improve our understanding about the interior structures of planets.  The event begins at Astronomy Aleworks on Tuesday, June 20th at 7pm for ages 21+ only.  Tickets are required at this event and can be reserved on Eventbrite.

AoT Las Vegas is run by researchers and graduate students from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.  We research a wide range of topics on all things astronomy, from exoplanets to black holes to gravitational waves and beyond.  We partner with Astronomy Aleworks to bring outer space to the public in the form of space-based trivia (with prizes!)  ranging from science history to sci-fi.  No prior knowledge is needed to participate in Astronomy on Tap, so come on down and learn a bit more about the universe with us!  Follow us on Facebook!
